Those Early Loving Moments

Today, Lauren Conrad devoted Tuesday Ten to her most memorable mommy moments that Lauren shares with her almost one year old son, Liam James Tell, who’s done nothing but grow up so fast right before Lauren’s eyes, and will soon celebrate his first birthday.

Lauren shares moments like when she and Liam have matching outfits of sweater and jeans, sitting with the Easter bunny, watching Liam grow up while sitting on the beach looking at the sand, taking up a hobby like his dad, William Tell, playing with the guitar, and getting messy with the finger paint.

Lauren next touches on how both she and William are no longer a pair anymore, they’re now a family of 3 that include Liam James, not trading in days of the new normal, playing dress up on the pumpkin patch for Halloween, precious moments sleeping, and sitting on the beach together.

Mom’s Vintage Trends

Lauren Conrad and crew today shared a new style guide involving their favorite ole school trends inspired by their dear ole mothers, sharing mods from the 1960’s, peasant dresses from the 1970’s, statement pieces and bodysuits from the 1980’s, and metallic accessories from the 1990’s.

Summer’s Almost Here

The Memorial Day holiday weekend kicks off in 3 days, which meansthe unofficial start of summer will finally arrive, so Lauren Conrad today got ready for the nice long hot season celebrating the country’s patriotism with do-it-yourself holiday drink decoration that not only pretty, but edible too.

Lauren first starts with the eye-popping things that are the drink stirrers made up of red, white, and/ or blue twine to be patriotic pom-pom swizzle sticks, you’ll also need scissors, a hot glue gun, and metallic tissue paper with simple instructions to make these colorful drink sticks seen a mile away.

Next, Lauren has the edible and tasty stuff that you can eat once melted, it’s the blueberry ice cubes, use fresh mixed berries, an ice cube tray to mold the ice any shape, edible star sparkles, and a little water, sparkling water, or your favorite drink to bring out the fun.

Lemonade, Not The Hard Way

To go with one’s patriotic drink stirrers and red, white, and blueberry ice cubes, Lauren Conrad’s crew today made some new lovely libations of healthy chia seed lemonade made by resident nutritionist, Kelly LeVeque, while it’s poured in glassware from The Little Market.

Now this lemonade is not made the way your grandmother makes it, you start with lukewarm water, a quarter cup of chia seeds, two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of tumeric, a pinch of black pepper, juice of six lemons, and 6 to 10 drops of organic stevia drops.

XLLULLAN Fall/ Winter 2018 Opera Seria Collection Lookbook

Look 1Look 2Look 4Look 5Look 6Look 11Look 12Look 14Look 17Look 18Courtesy: EB Consults Worldwide

We Love The Dramatic

The “Opera Seria” Collection by Xllullan, true to its name, combines delicate, luxurious and simplistic components.

These factors can be seen from the use of transparency against the embroidered wool fabrics to the incorporation of Chinese sand-washed silk double sided with hickory and dreamy royal blue hues.

The introduction of metallic ocean wave patterns and beaded faux fur embroidery creates volume and dimension which creates a movement that follows the wearer.

Black and silver dyed fox fur trims will magnify the collection which is sourced from The North American Fur Auction.

Combining silk and intarsia knits for sweaters and dresses along with wool jacquard as the fabric for puffer jackets gives this collection functionality without losing fashionability.

Nature inspired flower and leaf patterns with raw edges, a variety of textured materials and novelty fabrics, brilliant and muted colors that progressively desaturate.

The designer label Xllullan (pronounced X-Lo͞o-Lan) features modern throwbacks as well as retro and edgy styles.

Luxury meets practicality in the designs utilizing Italian and French textiles.

Many of the artistic aspects of this brand are drawn from literature, film and visual arts. Nature, which is prominently featured is also matched against manufactured feel of metallic materials.

The head designer Xuanxuan Li (Xuan) was born and raised in Qingdao(Tsingtao), a coastal city in Shandong Province, China. She pursued her education and career in fashion in New York, while majoring in Fashion Design at Parsons and Visual Arts at Eugene Lang.

Commenting on her inspiration, she states “at the core of my creative vision lies the idea ‘craft meets fashion’.”

Her goal is to build a visual story around both fashionable and wearable art by using unconventional combinations of materials and innovative fabric treatment techniques.

Through the exploration of various fabric manipulations and handmade construction, she aims to create everything from organic textures to architectural silhouettes.

Whether it’s coincidental or intentional, but in the spirit of the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle early tomorrow morning, Lauren Conrad and her Friday Favorites today give a look at how lucite can play a pivotal role in the wedding.

With help from Brit + Co, Lauren stumbles upon what only Lauren Conrad can call a pair of dreamy lucite chairs at the guest table, a clear type of plastic seating that gives a whole new dimension to one’s wedding reception to go with the perfect decor on the table.

What To Do With That Green Currency??????????

Like Lauren Conrad and yours truly have said before, the summer’s coming, and we want to look our best on and off the beach, so we may wanna spend a little more, today’s style steals goes for the splurges and saves.

Let’s start with striped swimsuits, spluring on Tori Praver Swimwear Adriana Ruffle Triangle Bikini Top, $99 and Isla Classic Bottoms, $75, and saving with J.Crew Ruffle Wrap Bikini Top, $62 and String Hipster Bikini Bottom, $44, plus wrap dresses with the splurge of  Anthropologie Breanna Polka Dot Wrap Dress and the savings from  Forever21 Polka Dot Wrap Dress.

Next up are woven handbags where you get to splurge on Clare V. Alice Bag, or you can save on LC Lauren Conrad Cookie Crossbody Bag, and also classic slingbacks with the splurge of Paul Andrew Rhea 15 Flats, or completely save on Halogen Elyse Slingback Pump.

Freshly Picked Fashion

Lauren Conrad’s Anna James today brought us Ladies Who Laptop once again, this time chatting with Susan Peterson who created Freshly Picked, a business that started in 2009 on a shoestring budget, before turning into a household name in Nordstrom’s catering to babies serving up footwear for the little ones.

The biggest takeaway once must realize with Susan here are whatever Susan could not find, Susan created it and turned it into a success, growing pains are still attached to this successful brand, and making stumbles along the way can lead to the greatest success you’ve ever had.

Hot On You At The Beach

Since the weather outside’s finally corporating with what the season says it is, it’s time today to report on Lauren Conrad with her style guide of the best swimsuit for your body type, dimming the dilemma of badly-lighted department store bikini shopping.

Highlighting your legs means buying a high-waisted bikini or a one-piece, with silhouettes elongating and drawing attentions to your legs, the chest needs a triangle bikini or low-cut one-piece flattering the bust for a fuller chest illusion, or a halter top bikini or any style to give your chest support.

Now, the an accentuated waist needs a one-piece with color-blocking or belt detail for much needed attention with hourglass effect, but your abs need an athlete-inspired bikini or a cut out one-piece, and those who love their buttocks must buy a bikini or one-piece with ruching details on the bottom or waistline.

LC Kohl’s Nail Prints

Lauren Conrad and company today looked to the prints of the May LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl’s to get inspired about recreating their LC Kohl’s very own prints on their nails, with lots of inspiration from Olive & June’s nail stickers which are adorable.

Now in the spirit of the spring and summer that’s soon coming, the LC crew goes for watermelon inspired nail art, reminding them of beach days everyday even when they’re not at the beach, a do-it-yourself mini-fashion project that will keep you going for those margaritas over and over again.

Timing Out Extra Brothers & Sisters

The Lauren Conrad company on Monday discussed the best age gaps between kids, meaning when it’s best to have additional children with the existing children you have now, Lauren’s gang and their closest associates say anywhere from a years to 5 years are the best age gap, planned or unplanned.

What It’s Like To Be Special

All mothers out there on Sunday got to not only felt a certain glow from giving birth to their children, but knowing that glow of motherhood was definite because they’ve devoted and sacrificed all their life so their kids can have a chance in the world.

Lauren Conrad got to know that very special feeling for the first time on Mother’s Day because Lauren has been a new mom since last July 5 when Lauren gave birth to her son, Liam James Tell, already seeing him grow fast right before Lauren’s eyes.

Lauren shared on Instagram with her 10 month old son side by side on the California beach that she was celebrating her first Mother’s Day ever, and it’s even extra special knowing that Lauren’s celebrating with the little guy who’s Liam James that Lauren’s now a mama in the first place.

Lauren went into her Instagram Story also to express how happy she was that it was her first Mother’s Day by showing off a little video of baby Liam James crawling in a cute baby blue onesie back and forth across the floor, with baking pans all over the floor, and the caption of “Happy Mother’s Day”.

Finally Call It Home

Whitney Port revealed to Architectual Digest today about her new renovated rancher finally being completed, Whitney, husband Tim Rosenman, and newborn, Sonny, at the time moved into the the 1950’s built one-story home last July, where the property had only one owner in all its history.

Whitney’s previous home was a three-story loft over in Venice, California, it was a wide open space, but the problem was that it had no doors, so Whitney and Tim decided that it would not be the right environment to start a family and raise Sonny in.

Whitney recruited Marie Flanigan of Marie Flanigan Interiors to aid in Whitney’s home renovation, where the catch was that it could not be rushed, because Whitney was seeking to keep her insanity, the result is a little bit of east coast country mixed in with bohemian-eclectic, and mockingbirds all around where Whitney Port believes it’s her father following her who passed away about 5 years ago.
